I plan to post more images once I have purchased a new laptop. The old one is starting to show its age and has its issues. In the meantime, I wish all a very happy, healthy and rewarding 2011!!! - V

the honeybee and the varroa mite
Over the last year or so I've posted something about the honeybee and the problem with the varroa mite. A friend of mine and former co-worker sent me the link to a news article recently. It would appear that scientists in the United Kingdom have found a way of solving this riddle using genetic means. The article is entitled, "Genetic breakthrough in fight against honeybee killer." You can check it out by going to the Guardian website here. Comments, as always, are appreciated.
